Made with some love and honour
THE Granite Belt is so lucky to have a host of talented ladies who delight in creating superb works of art.
Take the Quart Pot Quilters; I don’t know about you, but I certainly haven’t got the patience to do patch working.
Give me a computer and I’ll write you a story but please don’t ask me to try to make such treasures.
I still haven’t finished embroidering a supper cloth I began before my wedding 60 years ago, so there’s no hope for me.
When Betsy Pay decided she wanted to make the Remembrance Quilt to donate to the Amiens Legacy Centre, the Quart Pot Quilters elected to sponsor her and Kerrie
McGlashan who did the quilting.
Once the quilting was finished, Betsy assembled it to its present beauty. Betsy and her husband grew the Flanders Poppy on their Boulder Downs property at Amiens and always liked the flower.
This Quilt of
Remembrance by Pam Bono Designs was chosen as a perfect pattern to represent the sacrifices and hardships of our soldier settlers during WW1.
The pattern was designed by Robert and Pam Bono in honour of all troops, veterans and their friends and families throughout the world.
It is a beautiful creation crafted with much love. The fact that the world has not learned a single lesson from all the pain, suffering and waste of young lives over the last century probably means that this quilt will be being created for years to come.
It is a beautiful creation crafted with much love.
When you visit The Amiens Legacy Centre on November 11 during the 100th anniversary of the signing of the truce in 1918, you will have the opportunity to marvel at this queen size quilt which will be on display.
The generosity of Betsy and Kerry and the Quart Pot Quilters is appreciated by all members of the Amiens History Assn Inc and this work of art will be an exceptional treasure to be marvelled at by every visitor who visits The Amiens Legacy Centre in the future. Bless you and thank you, ladies.
